Manchester Men named on Warwickshire War Memorials
« on: August 29, 2023, 10:22:35 AM »
Hello
I help run the website www.swfhs.org.uk part of which is a project to transcribe all the war memorials south of the M6 and outside the boundaries of Birmingham and Coventry. We have over 2000 men in the database so far and we are in the process of building individual pages for each of them.

4 of them were in Manchester Battalions and I wanted to make you have them and to see if anyone has more information that I can include on their page.

L/Cpl 51694 Henry Matthew BRADBURN - 20th Bn, Manchester Regt - https://www.swfhs.org.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2363:lcpl-hm-bradburn&catid=16:the-men-who-fell-in-ww1
Remembered at Tanworth in Arden

Pte 79100 William John Salmon - 12th Bn - https://www.swfhs.org.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2505:pte-wj-salmon&catid=16:the-men-who-fell-in-ww1 Remembered at Wellesbourne

Pte 18776 Arthur Adams - 21st Bn https://www.swfhs.org.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2273:pte-a-adams&catid=16:the-men-who-fell-in-ww1
 
remembered at Southam

Lt Herbert Charles COLLINS - 24th Bn  Page not yet built - Remembered at Warwick All Saints Church.

I have no doubt that we will find more and I will post them here if we do.
